There are lots of hotels claiming to have ghat view but most only have partial view or only one or two rooms. Scindhia has several rooms right on the ghat with a fantastic view. The room is a decent size, super clean and while not luxurious, perfectly adequate (fridge, ac, warm water, tv, clean linens, etc.). The restaurant is somewhat barren but the food makes up for it. Some of the tastiest food we had here. However, what makes Scindhia stand out is the management of Kush. We arrived on the last flight to Varanasi and by the time we came out of the airport, all taxis were gone. As if on call, Kush called to ask if we had arrived and needed a taxi. Within 5 minutes a taxi arrived. When we arrived in town, two porters were waiting to carry the luggage to the hotel (the hotel

Kush is a lovely host and does everything to help. We had booked three nights here which turned in to two as we had to leave early, which we advised upon checkin but unfortunately we had no offers of getting the third night refunded which was disappointing. We organised a boat trip for two of us which cost 1000 rupees which I thought was expensive at first but it was quite a long way to row boat and I later read that is the government recommended rate. We had dinner in our room from the schindia restaurant and it was pretty good. We found the hotel pretty well using google maps, but then once you see the building it is still hard to find the way to the front door. We just had to ask someone as you need to go up some very obscure steps to get to the front door. You can only

It was our first trip to Varanasi. We found the manager Kush and the staff very helpful with ready suggestions about what to visit and where to eat. They do not push any advise on you, just suggest. The room we occupied was rather small and congested but i'd give anything for the unobstructed view of the river that we had! The negative is that the access to the guest house is by foot only through a maze of narrow streets. One morning we did not want the hotel fare but we could not go out to eat due to a heavy downpour. Kush made arrangements to get us typical Benaras breakfast and had it sent to our room.
